ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore pitched six strong innings and beat the Boston Red Sox 5-3 Tuesday night to remain unbeaten and claim a share of the major league lead in victories.

Moore (7-0) yielded a double to Dustin Pedroia and a three-run homer to David Ortiz in the first, then limited the struggling Red Sox to one hit over the next five innings.

The Rays overcame the early deficit with a five-run fifth off John Lackey (1-4). Jose Molina and Matt Joyce each drove in two runs in the inning, helping Tampa Bay extend its winning streak to a season-high six games.

Moore allowed three hits, walked two and struck out eight. The 23-year-old left-hander tied Washington’s Jordan Zimmerman for the major league lead in victories.
